Butterfly garden

After a few days near Geneva we moved to the southern end of Lac Annecy in the French Alps today. Staying in a luxurious chalet, I was pleased to find that the back garden was in fact a rich wildflower meadow, with about a dozen species of butterfly counted over the course of a week. Silver-Washed Fritillary (above) was the most numerous, Great Sooty Satyr (below) probably the largest and most spectacular to my eyes at least.
